I realize I'm supposed to be cool and have impeccable taste in music, but the truth is, there are a few albums on my shelf and in my iTunes library that I'd be a little ashamed to have strangers discover. I always find them this time of year, when I'm doing my spring cleaning — and against my better judgment, I always put them back on the shelf.
So I've decided to devote this week's Buzzworthy challenge to those albums you just can't make yourself get rid of, no matter how embarrassed you are to keep them. Two come to mind right away for me: Better than Ezra's Deluxe, which was one of the first CDs I ever bought, and Counting Crows' August and Everything After, which got me through all the really rough times in, uh, junior high. I honestly can't remember the last time I listened to either of these, yet getting rid of them seems impossible.
I know you're holding on to a few albums like this, too, so 'fess up. Using BuzzSugar's cool Buzzworthy bookmarking tool, find those embarrassing albums on the Web and tag or title them with the phrase shameful CD. Then, I'll post some readers' choices next week.

Don't worry: TeamSugar makes it easy to bookmark and capture anything on the Web that you consider "Buzzworthy." If you already have a "That's Fab" button on your browser's tool bar, you can use that to bookmark your Buzzworthy items. If you don't have the TeamSugar bookmarking button on your toolbar, you can learn how to get it by watching this video.
